. his budget costs seniors more on medicare and gives tax breaks to millionaires. well, what is that? we want medicare over millionair millionaires. >> seems we would be readjudicating the 2012 election altogether. i want to ask you, in the budget process, i know there was a call. it was reported that yourself and leader reid and a number of others, democratic leaders with the president, kind of all on the same page going into the budget process. and then this week, we read on wednesday that the president has said he is flexible about whether or not revenues can be on the table. and i know you've said revenues need to be on the table. harry reid has said revenues need to be on the table. are you confident that the president is going to, you know, stay with where the democratic caucus is on that issue? >> i think we'll stay together. if you have revenue on the table, you come to a bigger agreement to reduce the deficit, to grow the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say the
big fight over social security and medicare. top republicans are saying repeatedly that they will be glad to end the sequester, the across-the-board federal cuts that took place earlier this year, if democrats agree to future cuts in social security and medicare. how do you both think this is going to play out? >> well, president obama's indicated he's been willing to make cuts in both social security and medicare. but i think he needs something more in taxes than the republicans are prepared to give. so my guess is that you won't see that. but it does have me very concerned. these are openly on the table. and you look at the condition of today's elderly, i think you're really hard-pressed to say that they have too much money. i mean, for 40% of people over age 65, their social security check is more than 90% of their income. and these are checks that average a little over $1,200 a month. so to say that these people are doing so well, we should be looking to cut back their benefits or have them pay more for medicare, that to my mind seems 180 degrees wrong track. >>

. secretary kathleen sebelius is here to discuss the affordable care act. just like medicare part d, the launch of the website has not gone well. but the early glitches in this rollout will soon be forgotten, just like medicare part d. a lot of the discussion will focus on the website. this is an important issue. i want to learn what the secretary can tell us about the problems and how they will be fixed. we should keep this issue in perspective. the affordable care act is working. it has been improving the health security of millions of americans for the past three years. because of the affordable care act more than 7 million people on medicare have saved more than $8 billion on their prescription drugs. more than 100 million americans have access to free preventive coverage. they no longer face lifetime limits on their coverage. over 10 million americans have received rebates from insurance companies. finally, this january, the worst abuses of the insurance industry will be halted. never again will a family be denied coverage because their child has a chronic health condition. nev

the federal government oversees, like medicare, like social security, like the department of defense. and attitudes shift dramatically. suddenly, the public is quite happy with what the federal government is doing. which gets us to the much bigger challenge that the affordable care act represents. this isn't just about whether the white house and its allies can make a law work. it is a test, it is perhaps the defining test for the democratic party, a party that enacted the affordable care act without any republican support, and a party that is now trying to implement it with almost no republican support. there is a basic philosophical difference between the two parties today, it is that democrats believe the federal government can do big things. should do big things. there is no bigger more singular test of that belief than the affordable care act. if they fail that test, it will validate powerfully what has been the central conservative message since ronald reagan came to the national stage. every new program, every new initiative that any democrat proposes in the future would then
